"The Fall" as written by and Jeff Lynne....
I see the early glow, I hear you say hello
I watch the shadows fall, I don't see you at all

It's a lie (I don't believe it's so), it's a lie

I see the autumn rain, falling on my window pane
I hear you say goodbye, I see a tear in your eye

Chorus:
It's a lie (I don't believe it's so), it's a lie
Our love couldn't go wrong, how could I know I was only dreaming
And now, now that you're gone, I will go on really believing
I take the fall

I see you slip away, into another day
There's no-one else around, I watch the sun go down

chorus

(Instrumental break)

I take the fall

I see you in a dream, you turn and start to go
I call to you once more, guess that I'm takin' the fall

chorus

Our love couldn't go wrong, how could I know I was only dreaming
And now, now that you're gone, I will go on really believing
I take the fall

    General CommentIt’s about a mountain goat eating a beer can. Just kidding it’s about getting dumped. By an irreplacable super hot blond nymph Evidently. Take the fall and do it hard. Eat yer heart out. Ouch.
